I'm not sure how an entire half year has passed us by already. This girlie brings such a sweet spirit to our home, and we're glad she's here. She had her six month check up a few weeks ago (shots, boo!). 13 lbs 3 oz, 22.5".  She rolls over both ways, sits up like a pro, and lately has been experimenting with rocking back and forth on her hands and knees. People ask me all the time if she is always this happy and YES. She is. She's the most content and cheerful baby eva. She is finally adjusted to mountain standard time and she sleeps 12-13 hours straight (thank you). She is not impressed with purees but does like feeding herself puffs and peas or corn. She also LOVES fruit inside her mesh feeder (grapes and oranges are always a hit), and she especially enjoys sampling some of brother's mac&cheese. Looks like I need to do some research on baby led weaning, maybe. so happy six months elsie gorl (erm. 7 months on sunday.)

and for comparison, I give you newborn elsie:

  1. Elodie hated purees too, so we've done baby led weaning since Elodie was 6 months old and she loves it. I just give her what we are eating, but make sure to hold the salt. (she loves garlic and other spices in her food) and made sure to cut off all crusts and skins (pickle skin, bread crust, etc) since she choked twice on skin/crusts. She loves shredded meats and scrambled eggs too. I don't know, in the end, I felt like it was easier than purees just a little more scary since you have to be more watchful. But the babies seem to catch on quickly and handle it really well.

  2. She is so cute! And really does have the biggest smile all the time! :] I adore her! Also, Holland HATED purees and LOVED peas. She never liked her mesh feeder much though. I do think she's a super pro at eating by herself now just because she never let us feed her so she had to figure out how to do it all herself really fast! Haha. It will be interesting to see if my next baby is the same way. Also, I can NOT believe she is 6 months old! So crazy!!
